Just Like Beverly: A Biography of Beverly Cleary Reviews

  • Jen Solak
    As a child, Beverly Cleary’s books were a huge influence on me as I grew up wishing for a sister like Beezus and to have adventures like Ramona. When I saw that this book was the story of Cleary’s life (so far! She is 103 years old!) I was interested for nostalgia’s sake. What I didn?...

    So many reasons to love Beverly in addition to Ramona and Henry. Great biography! Beautiful illustrations....

  • Michael Fitzgerald

Absolutely hate the dumb attempt to make this two books by including SIX pages of very small type that tells the whole story AGA...

    I love Beverly Cleary's books. I didn't love this biography. I do see the author's challenge; Clearly's life was rather ordinary. I just wish the biography was more inspiring and less report-like. Cleary's voice and personality didn't come through. As Cleary is still alive at 103, there's time to wa...
